The St. Linus Ladies Guild cordially invites the community and our members to a FREE special event co-sponsored by the Chicago Archdiocese Vicariate V Ministry Commission. On Tuesday August 8 at 7 pm Rwandan genocide survivor Immaculée Ilibagiza will give her testimony entitled: “Left to Tell… A Story of Faith, Hope and Forgiveness.” Doors will open at 5:30 pm at St. Linus Parish located at: 10300 S. Lawler Avenue, Oak Lawn, IL 60453. Book and merchandise sales will take place before and after the event.  Guests seeking an autograph from Immaculée need to arrive early on August 8 and request an autograph ticket. Only 500 autograph tickets are available.  “Hiding in a tiny bathroom with seven other women as machete-wielding killers hunted for her, Rwandan genocide survivor, Immaculée Ilibagiza, experienced a terror few can imagine. During these 91 days of confinement, anger and resentment were destroying Immaculée’s mind, body and spirit. Come and listen and reflect on how prayer transformed her life from fear to courage, hatred to love, and gave her the ability to forgive those who murdered her family. You will not want to miss this award-winning author’s life-changing, inspirational story of faith, hope and forgiveness.”
